[CES 2016] LG Believes We’re Ready For An 8K TV

Entertainment / Tech / TV

With 4K TV prices falling, I suppose it’s a clear indication that we’re ready for the next jump in the technology behind in TVs. LG certainly believes so.

LG is keeping quiet on the details — all we know is that the model number is UH9800 and it’ll be huge, at 98 inches. We certainly expect this TV to cost a fair bit, and odds are you don’t want to get one. Don’t worry, LG has you covered.

LG also announced four other new television models, which are unfortunately “just” 4K. These are the 65 inch UH9500, the 86 inch UH9550, the Super UHD 65 inch UH8500 and the Super UHD 75 inch UH8550. LG claims that the Super UHD TVs have better color reproduction and advanced picture enhancement features like High Dynamic Range (HDR).

The UH9500 and UH955 also pack in a True Black Panel, which is LG’s proprietary solution to minimize reflections and enhance the contrast ratio.

LG also has a lot to say on the HDR Plus technology these TVs are packing:

HDR Plus is the technology that enables the UH9500 and UH9550 to show 4K HDR content as they were meant to be seen. What’s more, LG’s ULTRA Luminance technology greatly enhances contrast between dark and bright areas, greatly enhancing the HDR effect. And with HDR-compatible HDMI ports and an SDR-to-HDR conversation engine, viewers can enjoy near-HDR content from any standard source.

These TVs are also part of LG’s ULTRA Slim design line up. The flagship Super UHD TVs also have a sound system powered by Harmon Kardon audio technology.

The newest TVs will be running the latest version of webOS, version 3.0. webOS 3.0 focuses on ease of use while its predecessor, webOS 2.0, was all about speed.

LG’s SUPER UHD TVs with HDR will be on display in Central Hall Booth #8204 from January 6-9 in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Techaeris is at CES and we hope to get more details on these TVs, such as pricing and availability at LG’s booth. Stay tuned!
